About This Podcast and Esther:

This is the Health with Hashimoto’s podcast where exhausted women with Hashimoto's discover a true, simple, and sustainable path to whole health.


Hi! I am your host Esther Yunkin. I am a registered nurse with over 20 years of experience.


I grew fed up in the emergency department, where I saw people get short-term bandaids to chronic problems, so I went back to school for holistic health.


Now I help overwhelmed moms discover simple and sustainable solutions without getting overwhelmed.



Quickly, Hashimoto’s is when you have antibodies to your own thyroid. Your immune system is attacking your thyroid. 


Your thyroid produces thyroid hormone which is like the spark plug that lets each cell work. So when you have Hashimoto’s, every single cell in your entire body is impacted. That’s Hashimoto’s in a nutshell.


In this podcast, you will discover how to help your thyroid, how to help your immune system, and how to holistically help you: body, mind, spirit, diet, and environment.


This podcast is for informational and educational purposes. Please discuss any questions or concerns with your healthcare professional.
